Things I've used up

Hello all!  I have some products that I've used up recently and I wanted to share some of my thoughts on them but not really a review because most if not all of these products have been around a while.

1. Creme of Nature Argan Oil Treatment
I really liked this oil.  I put it on my hair wet and dry.  It does a good job of making my hair look not       so parched when I apply it to dry hair.

2. Alba Botanical Lip Balm (not pictured)
This lip balm is awesome!  I used to only use Carmex but I've been trying to use more natural and organic products so I gave this a try.  It works just as well as Carmex but contains natural ingredients and I believe is about 95% organic.

3. Dr. Lewin by Kinerase Wrinkle Repair Daily Lotion SPF30
I like this moisturizer but it's not my favorite.  I don't think it did anything for my wrinkles but it gets the basic job done with the SPF.  I would repurchase this but only if I couldn't find something else I wanted to try.

4. NYX Nude eyeshadow
This color basically matches my skin tone so it's extremely versatile.  I use it as a wash on my lid, or from lid to brow.  I use it as a highlight and I also use it to blend out colors that got a little too crazy.  It's a staple.

5. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
I like this foundation but it isn't super amazing to me.

6. Covergirl Lash Blast
Um, yeah.  Everyone everywhere know all about this.  It's just a great basic go-to mascara.  On a side note, I'm trying out a new mascara that is amazing when it comes to length.  I'll do a post on that soon.

7. Maybelline Super Stay Concealer
I really really like this concealer.  It. Stays. Put.  I can't say that about any other concealer I've tried, and I've tried a lot.  I will definitely repurchase this even though I continue my what seems like a never ending search for the perfect concealer.

If you have any questions on these products just ask away.  Thanks.

Juice Beauty Green Apple SPF15 Review

Hi everyone!  I'm back to blogging with a review.  Here ya go!

Wow! I do not have good things to say about this product.  I received a sample size of this product in the July Myglam bag.  I was really excited to try it because it says it's an organic product and I'm trying to find more natural products to add to my skin care routine. (Which by the way, is not going so well).  Anyway, here are my complaints about the product.

1. Smells like Lysol.  Um, yeah.  An organic product that smells like the most toxic product ever.  No thanks.  
2. It is extremely thick.  Now, I know it's consistency has to do with the zinc oxide in it.  And it's great that it has zinc oxide in it but it makes the product hard to blend in and is less moisturizing.
Finally, I'm not sure I should put this in as a con because I'm not 100% sure this product is the culprit, although I'll be very surprised if I'm wrong, it broke me out.  Now, it very well could be the combination of putting a serum underneath this moisturizer, but I don't think so because I've been using this serum for a while and I've used it under other products with no problem.  I can't leave the serum off because this "moisturizer" isn't moisturizing at all.

1. Organic
2. Has great physical bearer sunscreen

So, as always, not everything will work the same on everyone.  Unfortunatly, even if this product isn't what's breaking me out I still don't like it or recommend it.  

Has anyone tried this product?  Let me know what you think.
